I own the Vertex and the Vertex is the fastest they make. From fastest to slowest: Vertex > Apex > Core.

That's still not a bad price. 60GB is plenty for throwing the OS and programs on.

Go with the OCZ. I have an older version that is half the speed and it rocks!! The Apex series is rated faster than the Vertex series.
